It was exciting to learned about New York passing the Marriage Equality Act last Friday. I am all for equality for everyone because that just seems fair. If a gay or lesbian couple wants to get marry, let them do it. Will the world going to end? Not very likely. The people who are against same-sex marriages make it seems like it would be a total social disaster. I think those people should just let it go. There is no point arguing that marriages should only belong to straight people. In the end, there will be a federal bill that allow same-sex marriages in the future. It might not happen right away, but it’s coming soon. Good job, NY governor Andrew Cuomo for legalizing same-sex marriage on June 24, 2011.
I only wish that President Obama is more like Gov. Cuomo. I don’t understand why Obama is supportive of most gay rights, but not same-sex marriage. I think that is fucked up. I don’t care that his administration is saying he’s “evolving” in his opinion for same-sex marriage. That is total bullshit. To me, “evolving” just means he is wishy washy. All I see is that he is on his reelection campaign and doesn’t want to risk losing his more social conservative voters. It’s always politics. Yes we can, my ass. If he wants change, he should just legalize same-sex marriage in a federal level than just letting the states decide.
Anyway, it’s also sad that California haven’t legalize same-sex marriage and we have a Democrat-controlled government. New York passed it and they are run by Republicans. Boggles the mind!
The world did not end at all last Saturday at 6 pm. It was probably the biggest non-news last weekend. It’s okay because I had such an amazing weekend.
Friday night was all about Kylie at the Hollywood Bowl. This was her second concert in Los Angeles and I was so happy that I can go to this one. Her show, Aphrodite Live, was amazing! I always knew that Kylie Minogue can put on a great shows, but never knew it was this awesome. Since Kylie is not as popular in the United States (damn Americans!), the audience at the Hollywood Bowl made up of her core fans, the fabulous gays. I think we were the only handful of straight couples there because everyone there were gay. I was probably the only 2% of females there. No line for the restroom! Yes!
I totally love the show. There were so much energy, everyone was dancing and singing along. She did a fan request which was “Locomotion” and it was just so fun singing along! This is the only concert where I knew all the songs. Seeing Kylie live was worth the money spent on the tickets. Next time, I am paying more for the tickets. I want a better seat next time! It was also worth the trek uphill from Hollywood & Highland to the Bowl. Kylie should do a permanent show in Las Vegas. Forget about Celine Dion, I want Kylie Minogue! Wishful thinking.
I’m fascinated by the Salton Sea. It is almost becoming my new obsession.
So, we first went to the Joshua Tree National Park with the dogs to check it out. It’s an awesome place to visit. Very weird looking landscapes with the strange rock formations and those odd looking Joshua Trees. It was National Park Week, so the entrance fee was waived. Good deal. If we went another time, it is $15 per vehicle for seven days to enter the park. Joshua Tree has a lot of hiking trails and I would have love to go on one of the trails. Unfortunately, pets are not allow on trails. Pets are allow inside the park, but they have to be on a leash. We did sort of went on a mini walking trail at Cap Rock, but we didn’t stay that long. My dog, Andy, spent the whole time looking for one shade to another shade and finding the perfect spots to pee.
